FÊTE de la MUSIQUE - Curated by Rounak Maiti
"Singer-songwriter Rounaik Maiti is a musician the vanguard of both India’s alternative psych-folk movement and years-long obsession with indie dance and esoteric electronica. Besides having a series of critically-lauded release to his credit, he also presents So Long, My Saviour over on 
 For his Fete de la Musique playlist contribution, Rounak has penned a note for you to read before you dive in: “I took a quick trip around the world for this hour-long mix to celebrate Fete De La Musique, looking for some of my go-to french language selections from Canada to Cameroon, and other manifestations of folk, soul and electronica from around the world. Folk and soul take so many forms in different musical cultures, and there's something quite universal about them; whether it's wailing horns in French Guinea's swing orchestra music or those wandering electric guitars in Kourosh Yaghmaei's tunes, the emotion flows through them similarly. Ideal for late afternoons and even later nights.”"
